Thank you for grounding us!

I think you would like the 6-16-74 version (show before yours) which has an Eyes of the World going right into Big River. It has very recently been released and you cannot listen to it here on the Archive!

Fortunately, this sequence was featured on the Taper's Section at http://www.dead.net/features/tapers-section/june-16-june-22-2008

The jam joining the two is truly unique!

Here's a runner up of sorts: http://www.archive.org/details/gd74-08-06.merin.weiner.gdADT.5914.sbefail.shnf

This show features a first set, stand-alone Eyes which is also quite rare. I especially dig Jerry's inter-verse solos. Also can't resist plugging the Playin' > Scarlet Begonias > Playin' sandwich.

And finally, http://www.archive.org/details/gd1973-03-28.sbd.mtx.tobin.86833.sbeok.flac16

The closing sequence of songs from this show is Dark Star > Eyes of the World > Playin' in the Band, Johnny B. Goode. The band is very focused and tight in this sequence. Those minor chord jams at the end of Eyes are sweet.
